Are you Jewish?

Do you have Jewish roots? Are you an Ashkenazi? Are you a Levi or a Cohen?

A DNA test by iGENEA provides you with clear evidence of whether you have Jewish roots. Based on your specific genetic characteristics, we can identify whether you are of Jewish descent, which line the Jewish descent is from (paternal, maternal or both lines) and even to what percentage you are Jewish. In addition, your profile is compared with more than 700,000 people in our database. If we find a genetic match, i.e., people with whom you correspond genetically, you may contact these people and intensify your family research.

Is Judaism more than a religion? Is there a jewish Gene?

Ethnic groups who marry among themselves for generations are genetically "linked". It is scientifically undisputed that there are genetic patterns that occur frequently in Jews. Jews have developed over the centuries a certain degree of genetic homogeneity that becomes visible in a DNA-test.

The Jewish People, however, is not entirely genetically seperable. So no test can give you an unambiguous proof. Nevertheless a genealogical DNA test can confirm a Jewish origin.

Even if you don't belong to one of the typical Jewish haplogroups, you could still have Jewish roots. By comparing your DNA-Profile with all other profiles in our databank (over 700.000), you will find persons whose profiles are genetically similar to yours ("genetic cousins"). If many of your genetic cousins are Jews, then there is a high probability that you have Jewish roots, too.

The result shows the composition of your origin by region. In addition to the online result, you will receive a noble certificate of origin in an golden frame and other documents in an elegant portfolio.

Terms on the subject of 'Jewish descent'

Cohen Modal Haplotype
There is a certain DNA-Profile called the "Cohen Modal-Haplotyp", because it appears repeatedly among the Jewish sub-group called the Cohanim. This haplotype is a clear indicator of Jewish ancestry.

Ashkenazi
Ashkenazi is the self-designation of Western and Eastern Jews who are united by a common religious tradition and culture.

Sephardim
Sephardi Jews is the name adopted by the descendants of Jews who for the most part settled in the Ottoman Empire and northwest Africa (Maghreb) after their expulsion from the Iberian Peninsula (in around 1500 AD).

Levi
The Levi, named for their tribal father, are one of the twelve tribes of Israel, who descend from the sons of Jacob.

Cohen
Cohen is the biblical name of the priesthood in Judaism.

Haplogroups
Haplogroups represent the various branches of the human race and show the roots and movement of our ancestors.

Genetic indigenous peoples by iGENEA

By Ancient tribes, we refer to peoples from ancient times who are defined not only by their own language, culture and history, but also by their own DNA profile. An origins analysis by iGENEA determines your Ancient tribe by means of your haplogroup and genetic profile. The result refers roughly to the period between 900 BC and 900 AD.

I am a genealogist and have already collected a lot of material. How can I benefit from such a test?

A DNA genealogy test can be helpful even for experienced genealogists. Church records and other documents used for researching family trees were not always accurate and complete when issued. There are numerous cases in which wars, unrest or natural disasters have led to the destruction of such records. In earlier times, documents of this nature were not even compiled and it used to be impossible to trace family relationships this far back. It is precisely here that a DNA genealogy test can be helpful. By comparing different people you can check their relationships. This enables you to join together different branches of your family tree and confirm or disprove speculations and family legends as well as reach back into centuries from which no written records have survived with your research.

How far back does a DNA genealogy test go?

The basic test goes back to approx. 2,000 years. Premium and Expert tests date back to approx. 100,000 years.

What's the difference between the three tests?

With the iGENEA Basic Test you can find out your percentage of origin, find relatives and receive a written result with a certificate about your result. The Premium Test contains the Basic Test and additionally the haplogroup, the primitive people and the region of origin for the pure paternal or pure maternal line are determined. Additional relatives can be found in the desired line. The Expert Test contains the Basic Test and additionally contains the haplogroup, the primitive people and the region of origin for the pure paternal and pure maternal line. Additional relatives can be found in both lines. Our Expert Test is the most comprehensive genealogical DNA test in the world.

How can my paternal lineage be researched if I am a woman?

With our DNA-Explorer you can find out your entire origin of the maternal and paternal side. Women and men can do this test. Only for a test of the pure male line we need the samples of a man, this can be e.g. the father, a brother, uncle or cousin. If you do not have a male relative, we recommend our iGENEA Basic Test (DNA-Explorer). If you have such a relative who is willing to give samples, we recommend our iGENEA Premium Test.
